‘Floyd Art Dialogue’ on Sept. 13 to kick off The Jax’s featured artist program
The Jacksonville Center for the Arts is hosting a “Floyd Art Dialogue” on Sept. 13 at 12 p.m. to kick off its new featured artist program.
This is an open discussion regarding art and will deal with questions such as: Does art serve a purpose? What good is art? Floyd arts community member, Radford University art professor and nationally known artist Charlie Brouwer will lead a discussion about the nature of art universally and, with the help of participants, put it in a local context. This event will be free and open to all with an interest in art (including all mediums) and participants are welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch.
This is one of two scheduled events with more to follow in the spring of 2013. The second event is a two-day “Constructed Wood Sculpture Workshop” on Nov. 10 and 17 at Brouwer’s studio. It will include generating ideas and planning, as well as having students choose from a variety of techniques to construct a wood sculpture. The class will be for ages 13 and older, and no previous woodworking experience will be required. The class is limited to 10 participants.
